Paramount's "Smile" outperformed expectations and finished its sophomore frame in first place with $22.6 million, a very soft 22% drop from its opening weekend, bringing its doemstic cume to $49.8 million after 10 days in theaters. The film also grossed a total of $40 million overseas from 61 markets, which brings the film's worldwide tally to $89.8 million against a $17 million production budget.

Sony's family musical "Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile", based on the kids book of the same name, opened in second place with $11.5 milllion from 4,350 theaters, which is below pre-release projections of a $15 million debut. The film received mixed reviews from critics (68% on Rotten Tomatoes), but a warmer reception from moviegoers ("A-" CinemaScore).

In third place we find David O. Russell's star-studded new film "Amsterdam" which bombed with $6.5 million from 3,005 theaters, against an $80 million production budget. The film fell below pre-release projections, which were in the range of a $8-10 million debut. It received a terrible reception from critics (34% on Rotten Tomatoes), but the audience reception was somewhat better ("B" CinemaScore).

"The Woman King" finished in fourth place with $5.3 million, dropping just 22.4%. The film has grossed a total of $54.1 million domestically, but only $10 million overseas.

The Top 5 is rounded out by "Don't Worry Darling" with $3.4 million. The film has grossed a total of $38.4 million in North America, and another $30.8 million overseas.
